  • Thrones is my favorite by far, followed by The Sopranos and The Young Pope.

  • Thrones is an easy pick
    Leftovers is one of my favorite shows ever made
    The Wire
    Silicon Valley while repetitive is hilarious
    Excited about upcoming Watchmen series
    Veep is also hilarious, took me a bit to get into it but then flew threw all the seasons. Every character is a terrible person, cept for Gary.
    Westworld is a solid B+

  • My favorites of all time?

    1. Game of Thrones
    2. Boardwalk Empire
    3. Curb
    4. Deadwood

    I really enjoyed Barry. Didn't watch all of Big Little Lies, but caught enough when the SO was watching and I actually ended up liking it. I haven't watched a ton of HBO programming so my favorites would be:

    1. GoT
    2. Westworld
    3. Deadwood
    4. Barry

    Yeah Sharper Objects is a slow burn, but Amy Adams is so damn good you just can't stop watching. Same with The Night Of, Riz Ahmed and John Turturro just chew up every scene they're in it's so engrossing. Highly recommend, and it's a one off season show, so no commitment. Beginning, middle, end. Awesome.

  • In no order:

    Entourage - Awesome show, very entertaining and felt like I was following an actual movie star and his group of friends

    The Night Of - Such a well done show. Probably my favorite crime series.

    Big Little Lies - I don't know why but I really enjoyed this series. Great acting all around.

    Just realized I've never really watched any of the obvious HBO shows that everyone likes. I'm not into GOT, but never seen The Wire, Deadwood or The Sopranos. On a side note, has anyone watched season 2 of Westworld? Heard it wasn't very good and gets pretty confusing.

    I couldn't afford fancy cable until long after the Sopranos and Wire ran, and I'll be honest I've tried to go back numerous times to watch each series and gave up.

    I know both are widely considered two of the greatest TV shows of all time, and maybe they were ahead of their time for violence, acting and being edgy television shows........but now? While still engaging, both are woefully dated.

  • I haven't really watched too many HBO series in the last couple years so I am not up to speed with any of the newer shows but...

    1. Curb Your Enthusiasm
    2. The Wire
    3. Deadwood
    4. Sopranos
    5. Life and Times of Tim - I think it only ran for one season but I enjoyed it.

    Looks like they are doing one about the pilots next. Not sure when it'll be out.

  • Anybody watch the new True Detective?

    First episode was subdued, but you can tell they circled the wagons with a great team of writers to make sure there story is cohesive and not just a jumbled mess like season two was.

    Ali is great as well.

  • This is going to be a slow burn and then get really intense somehow and finish with the Older version confronting the situation.


    Really liked how it has played out so far.
